I did it I finished my stacked coin quilt

I can't believe it I finally did it I finished my stacked coin quilt. Remember the challenge.........yeah I almost don't remember it either. It was so long ago. I got the fabric as one of my Christmas presents last year. It's not my most favorite but it did turn out nice.

A little late

I started this quilt last year.  I did finally get it done about 2 weeks ago so we have got to enjoy it for most of Oct.  I like how it turned out.

We had a great time at the pumpkin patch on Saturday.  Weather was rain at least while we were there.

As you can tell we were all having a good time.

I just love this picture of Sarah.  Who would guess she is the mother of four lovely girls.
Pumpkins everywhere even a few punkins..........
Kids can have fun with just about anything.  Even traffic cones.

Part 4 of Summer Vacation Glacier National Park

Nana and Pookie getting ready to head into the park

We had a great Breakfast before we headed into the park.  Really good food and unbelievable prices.  Full breakfast $3.95

They were working on The Road to the Sun.  So we had time to get out on the road and take these pictures.  It was a long drop down...........

The spring flowers are just finishing up there blooming.  It was a warm day for the park 68 maybe 70

How about that I got her without the camera in her face.  What a pretty women.

Part 3 of Summer Vacation Yellowstone

Brice was having yogurt for lunch.  We were at Sheepeater in Yellowstone.

Those are some great examples of columnar basalt. My pookie was tired of lunch and wanted to play

Here is his mom taking more pictures.  

He's ready to climb them now.  He's had lunch and ready to go.  Looks like he's saying come on mom we can do it.

Mom is taking a break but pookie is ready to go.

Part 2 of Summer Vacation Twin Falls, ID

Perrine Bridge, Twin Falls Idaho

Two of my favorite people walking on the bridge.  It it so high up we had a really tight grip on Brice's hand.  It was so beautiful until you looked on the banks of the gorge and see all the chain stores.  Old Navy just should have this view.  I really know why have such restriction on the Columbia Gorge and I think it is worth it.

Baby and mom hiking up the trail.  The pack worked pretty good as long as mom keep going.  He didn't like to stop.

Brice's mom doing one of her favorite thing.

This is one of the little chipper.  He was way to friendly and was chasing us down the trail.  I really don't care for rodents.

A Summer Day at the Beach

Yes, Liz I am blogging .  I know it's been few and far between.  I'm a busy Nana.  But last week I did spend a great day with 2 of my favorite people.  At the beach, what better way to spend a summer day.

It was pookies first time.  He wasn't too sure about the sand at first.  But got use to it fast.  Just like he does everything.

Pookies mom doing what she is always doing.  He is so use to it.  He will make a great star he is so use to the camera.  It's always in his face.  We do love to take photos of him.

Mom and son having a great time on the beach.

Time to head out he was pretty tired.  When to sleep almost as soon as we put him in his car seat.  Hope your summer is as great as ours.

Been away but back

I know I've been away awhile but I'm back for a bit.  I've been busy away on a couple of trips to AZ one for pleasure and another for not so happy of a time.   But here are some pictures of my garden.  I made these raised beds and planted them they are doing quite well.  This one is blueberries, pole beans and nasturtiums.
My Biltmore estate bird house.  It's falling apart but I love this birdhouse.  My mom had it at one of her houses and when she moved she said I could have it.  It's one of my favorites.
Another one of my garden boxes with my cucumbers, yellow and green zucchini.

And my water fountain that only took me two years to figure out how to do.  Then my son and I whipped it together in about 20 min.

And a photo of the wild gang.  Some have to be jailed more than others. Katie, Calvin and livie are in the kennel and Lady and Honey are out.  Lady and Honey follow order better.  Have a great day. I will try to be better about posting.  But, it's had when there is so much to do out side.

More fabrics I love

I got these fabrics from Sew Mama Sew about a week ago.  They are mostly from the Denyse Schmidt  Kate jump rope but there are a couple of Heather RossLighting bugs and Mendocino in there too.  Sew Mama Sew is the best online fabric store I have ever ordered from.  They are so professional about getting their ordered out.  You order get an email conformation right away as soon so you order is ready and sent you get another email and it is in your mailbox before you know it.  I've ordered from them a few times and always had the best services.  Thank you Kristin.

I heart this fabric

I love these Heather Ross fabric.  I love them so much that I just take them out and look at them.  I love them so much that I can't make anything out of them.  I just want to have them and look at them all the time.  My daughter Christina thinks I should stretch them on canvas and hang them in my sewing room so I could see them all the time.  But I like to touch them too as they are just the softest fabrics.  I think I just put them back in the fabric cabinet for now and take them out every now and then to ogle over.

Fabric Baskets

Liz came out last weekend and her and I worked on some fabric baskets with the help of my darling daughter Christina.  I think they turned out quite nice.  Liz made a bunny face and ears for her very cute for Colin's Easter basket.  I'll give mine to my grandson Brice I'm sure his mom will find something nice to put in them.

So more crafting

This is the wall looking out of my craft room it looks so bright and sunny.  I love the framed quilt pieces.  I found these at an antique store and thought they would make great art........

I love my iron.........I know I'm strange but I like to iron and having great equipment makes it all that much better

Look mom I'm just sitting here watching I'm not really in the craft room.  That Lady she is a little stinker.  But soooooooooooo cute...................

Spending time in the craftroom

Yeah, do you think Nana will let me help her?

Nice sunny Sunday and I am working on cutting out my Joel Dewberry quilt I bought the kit about 2 years ago.  I love it but every time I look at the pattern Hip to be Square I think to myself maybe I do it later.  Well, I guess later is here.  I really want to make it.  It is just going to take time to cut it out.  12 different fabrics and lots of different cuts.  I'll get there just one cut at a time.

It's so fun to get the fabric all squared up and pressed just right.............

I love my craft room but sometimes I think I should lower the cutting table one notch.

And look I do use my long arm.  I drape my pieces all over it.  But if you look close you will see that I have a quilt part way loaded.  My stacked coin quilt is just about ready to quilt.  Who knows I might even do it myself or get my daughter to do it for me.
